News10 has launched a major initiative called 'Reading Connects.' Its purpose is to help build a stronger community, one reader at a time.
Fact: 37% of third graders in Sacramento read at grade level. 74% of those students will never catch up.
News10 is teaming up with parents, businesses, schools, libraries and volunteers to improve the literacy rate in our area. We are combining the power of television, the web, and social media with the power of good people who want to make a difference.
Reading is one of the keys to a successful and productive life.
A minor investment of your time can change the path of a child's life.
We are here to help with information, resources and opportunities- for you to help build a better community.
News10 produces PSAs throughout the year to promote reading in our community.
Tell us how reading has impacted your life. Your story may become the next inspirational message on our air. Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
